Agency will begin work on date that Client purchases Work Product, and the work is ongoing in accordance with Section 1.5 and Section 5 or final approval by Client. This Contract can be terminated by either the Client or the Agency pursuant to the terms of Section 5, Term and Termination.
The Client acknowledges and agrees that all supporting files and documents required by Agency to execute Work Product must be uploaded to “Brand Assets” section of Client’s Portal no later than 7 calendar days after payment.

If Client fails to execute the aforementioned onboarding procedure, this Agreement is automatically terminated 8 calendar days after payment with no possibility of refund. Furthermore, Agency is not obligated to execute changes to Work Product in any Phase (outlined in 1.4) if Client omits, neglects, or erroneously executes the onboarding procedure in any way, including but not limited to: Uploading old branding, leaving questions blank, not uploading photos, designs, source files, and any other supporting documents required by Agency for full execution of Work Product.
The Client acknowledges and agrees that the Work Product, including scripting, storyboarding, and animation, shall each be treated as it’s own project phase, and therefore undergo separate approval phases. Once the Client provides written approval for the Work Product in each phase, the Agency is not obligated to revisit or execute changes to previously approved phases. Furthermore, the Agency shall not commence the next phase of work on the Work Product until the current phase has been approved in writing by the Client, specifically stating “Approved”. This mutual understanding establishes a clear framework for the approval process and ensures efficient progression through each phase of Work Products.
Client has 7 calendar days to request Changes to each Work Product created by Agency after delivery. If no approval occurs before the 7 day period, Agency retains the right to charge Client $500 to cover operational expenses caused by delay. The total sum charged for delay is not to exceed $1,500 if multiple Work Products need approval. If no approval occurs 7 days thereafter, Agency is not obligated to provide any further Changes to Work Product. Client acknowledges Agency will provide up to 7 Revisions per each work product for the solo plan $2499, unlimited revisions per each work product for the starter, the scale up and custom plan . Additional revisions will incur an additional charge of $50 per requested revision. Agency is responsible to provide Changes to Client in a reasonably time sensitive manner.
